After sleeping for 8 to 12 hours, waking up to a hearty and nutritious breakfast – one that will give you sufficient energy to take on the day – is very important. But how do you include all of these nutrients in one meal?
Pair a glass of milk at breakfast helps to fulfil the nutrient needs of your body. While milk is a great source of calcium, there’s more to it than that.
Beyond strengthening your bones, milk is an excellent source of protein. Protein is an essential nutrient that your body cannot create on its own, and unlike fat, it cannot be stored in the body for future use. Protein needs to come from an outside source, and it needs to be taken daily. A daily glass of milk will make up a good source of your daily protein requirement.
The Benefits of Milk: Packed with Protein
Protein is necessary in everyone’s daily diet because it’s a building block for the body and muscles.1 It protects and helps repair the body, and keeps it running smoothly throughout the day.
Compared to other sources of protein, the protein found in milk is easier to digest, and contains nine essential amino acids (EAA).2 It’s also one of the most convenient sources of protein, since it’s easily available.
Just one glass of Dutch Lady PureFarm milk at breakfast will help you meet more than 50% of your protein needs at breakfast — so start your day strong with a glass of milk!
